~ 10 Sounds . . .

. . . that drive me bonkers.

Over at Northwest Mommy they're playing "Monday Listicles"
and I've decided to join in.
Her list for this week is "10 Sounds That Drive Me Bonkers".
So, here's my list of 10 sounds that drive me bonkers:

(In no particular order)

1.  Barking dogs ... especially yippers ... one neighbor seems to put their little yipper out at 6:00 a.m. to do it's thing and then forgets about it ... and it barks.  And yips.  And barks.  And yips.  

2.  It's 2:00 a.m. ... you're awakened by the LOUD sound of a motorcycle going by.  Very.Loud.  Why? It's twofreakino'clock!  In.The.Morning!

3.  The sound of someone spitting irks the heck out of me.  Not to mention the "yuck" factor!

4.  Slurping.  Pullllleeeaase don't slurp in front of me.  I may have to hurt you.  Someone very close to me slurps when he eats soup.  I've mentioned it.  Many times.  Still slurps.

5.  The sound of someone dragging their feet when they walk.  Pick.Up.Your.Feet.  

6.  Air sucking through teeth.  That sound makes me want to scream. 

7.  The sound of firecrackers going off.  4th of July or not.  Don't like that sound.  It's annoying not to mention illegal here. 

8.  The sound of a snow blower.  Freakin' irks me as much as the sound of ...

9.  ... the town snowplow trucks. 

10.  The sound of someone farting ... in the kitchen ... at the table.  Okay, call me crazy but this really troubles me.  It's a rule in my house.  No farting in the kitchen. At the table.  Someone let one slip the other day.  I looked over at him.  He was ignoring me but had guilt all over his face.  I gave him the stink eye (no pun intended).  He continued to ignore me.  I was fuming (no pun intended again).  It makes me crazy!  Irrationally crazy!  Just don't fart in my kitchen...at the table...and I won't put up a stink.  ;-)


  1. Great list! My eye is twitching just thinking about all of those things. :) Timing seems to be important with a lot of sounds that irritate us.

  2. Lmfao!!! Oh geez I've go tears!!!! Great selfie D!! Xo

  3. I'm dying at #10. :)
    Foot dragging! Ugh! And I'm not a big fan of firecrackers either - they make me tense and cranky.

  4. when my Mom lived with me, her "farts" would come anywhere, anytime and no stoppin' no matter where, in fact when she got up from sitting she sounded like a toot engine getting started...and I'm with you on the motorcycle at whatever time of the night!!

  5. You are cracking me up this morning.. What a fun list or not so fun. LOL..


  6. I'm sorry I haven't been here in a while. You make lovely pictures and wonderful poetry. This sounds list is very funny. Thanks for bringing some lightness to my day!!

  7. Yep. These are pretty much the worse! I agree with you, and farts and food should not be in the same room!! Great list, I love your photo!!

  8. LOL! I'm so with you on the farting thing.

  9. Oh I do sympathize with your noise irritants. But, maybe if you were completely deaf you wouldn't mind hearing any of those sound. food for thought. It's all relevant. Me I can't stand rude, discourteous boors.


Thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment .... let's chat!
